Screams of terror

The Screams Of Passion (Extended Version) - The Family

Prince's first sign to his newly-formed Paisley Park Records in 1985. Edit: (Because I had a huge brainfart when I originally wrote this) The band featured Susannah Melvoin (Wendy's twin) and ex-Time members Jellybean Johnson, Jerome Benton and Paul Peterson. The band was led by Paul Peterson (renamed St. Paul for this project). Except for the track "River Run Dry", the band's debut LP was written and performed entirely by Prince. Melvoin's and St. Paul's vocals were added in later along with a few other tweaks. The Family dissolved after this record only to reunite in 2003 briefly and announced the recording of a new CD early last year. This version runs 6:48 and is not about screaming from a kidney stone.

P.S.: Unfortunately, as you've noticed, I'm not going to be able to update this site as regularly as I used to for a while. I'll still post as much as I can and thank you to each and every one of you who have visited so far.

I'd just like to correct a couple of things regarding your information on the 'Screams Of Passion' download.

Wendy Melvoin was not in the band, it was her twin sister Susannah. Also, Wendy and Lisa were not twins. Lisa Coleman was a family friend of the Melvoins'.

I'm a frequent visitor to your to your blog, and think it's excellent.

LOL, you are sooo right and I feel like an ass. That's what I get for rushing to post. I am a huge Wendy and Lisa fan (both with and after Prince) and I didn't even realize I typed that. Thanks for pointing it out to me and for the compliment. Now, if you'll excuse me I'm going to bang my head on my monitor for a bit :-).
